In October 2009, the US NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a US multinational enterprise had breached the disclosure, and employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in South Korea.
The parties declined the good offices of the Korean NCP who had been alerted about the request. The US NCP concluded that the specific instance did not merit further consideration on the grounds that the issues raised did not merit further consideration under the Guidelines.
